Top Indoor Playgrounds in Halifax

Hey parents, are you looking for fun indoor play facilities to take your kids to in Halifax? Here are some of ChatterBlock's favourites.

Ice Patch Hollow Indoor Playground

Brian Hiltz created a book series featuring fun and adorable cartoon animals. His first book was called Joey the Penguin, a story about a penguin who lives with his friends in a make-believe place in Antarctica called Ice Patch Hollow. Brian decided to bring this fantasy world to life by creating an indoor playground inspired by Ice Patch Hollow. 

At the playground, children have fun playing on the play structures and with the array of toys, but they also get to interact with characters from Brian's stories, like Joey the Penguin, Preston the Polar Bear, and Edna the Octopus.

Ice Patch Hollow greatly welcomes walk-ins ages 1 to 12 years old from 9:30am to 6:00pm seven days a week. They also host parties with a private party room starting at $230.

The Play Box is a vibrant indoor playground and café, located at Evergreen Place in Dartmouth.  The play structure has been carefully designed with children and parents in mind. There are lots of activities to keep the younger guests amused, whilst line of sight allows you to see your children (unless you want to join them having fun in the structure!). You can enjoy a coffee and relax, knowing your child is safe.

Open 7 days a week, The Play Box offers an enticing variety of espresso based drinks. The café has a great menu, including homemade chilli and children’s food boxes, which are a massive hit.
